Philly Craft Spirits Week kicks off this Thursday at Philadelphia magazine’s Whiskey and Fine Spirits Festival. The fest will feature a local spirits sectin with tables and bars representing the 11 participating distilleries in Philly Craft Spirits Week.
Beyond Whiskey Fest, each participating distillery is setting up a bevy of exciting events where you may tipple between Thursday, October 27 and Friday, October 4.
Among the Highlights:
As we’ve been saying, Philadelphia’s craft distilling scene is booming. In fact it’s getting its own week. Kicking off with Philadelphia magazine’s Whiskey and Fine Spirits Festival on Thursday, October 27th, Philly Craft Spirits Week runs through Friday, November 4th. Follow Foobooz (we’re a presenting sponsor) for more details as the week approaches.
But you don’t have to wait until the end of October to enjoy locally produced spirits. On Sunday, World Cafe Live is hosting Distilladelphia, a tasting event that will feature 19 local distillers.
George Sabatino‘s menu at Aldine has never been what one would call a stable document. Sure, there are things that you can count on being there (oysters, yogurt, something weird done with carrots and something awesome done with beets), but the kitchen changes things up regularly enough that its almost always a different experience every time you go.
And now, with summer in full swing (and following a week’s vacation for George and Jennifer Sabatino), Aldine is rolling out some pretty significant changes–in menu, in hours, and even in the way dinner is served.
